Offensive player playing in the 4th line is not much of a chance. Just let May play if this is the case.

I agree with you there, but it may be the only chance he gets. This could just be Babcock showing Leino who's in charge especially after his "I'm not a 4th line player" comments to the media. Leino just needs to bear down and get through it.

Nope, really it's about being realistic.

Being realistic is saying that Leino is currently a bust. Hoping that he'll just pack up and go back to Finland (rather than the preferable move, which would be to improve and make an impact at the NHL level) isn't being realistic, it's being a short-sighted, selfish jackass. And that sums up many fans for you, sadly. X player isn't playing well for the team in his first full time year at said level, and as such he has committed a grave personal insult against me!

It limits the amount of lazyness and ineffectiveness Leino can bring to the ice by giving him small ice time.

I dunno, I'd say at this point it's more the "LGW stop giving icetime to lazy, physically ineffective slackers" crowd aka everyone except that guy from Finland that likes Leino smile.gif

Who's in this "LGW Pro-enforcer crowd"? I would have thought I was, but lo and behold here I am, not pissed in the least.

We need some points bad and we're playing a relatively physically weak team. Scratching Downey was a calculated risk and I hope it pays off. Here's to Leino netting a hattie tonight!
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

To be honest he ain't got more skills than any top3 guy in any SEL-club, it comes down to his type of play and his attitude and work ethic is waaay below nhl standards, and after being in the dog house all year he still don't seem to have got that through his head that he NEEDS to change or just become uber skilled like Zetterberg and Datsyuk, which is very unlikely yeah, can you see him improve his skating and balance about 3times his current? i don't think so, he's one of them skilled players who just don't fit in the nhl.

Wanna know the name of another player who you could've said some of this about until he fixed his attitude and was given more of a chance than the doofuses here would've given him?
